Catalogue Note

A rare work on the sector. “After introducing the history of the sector and giving credit to Galileo, he describes the scales and tables on the instrument and the elementary operations it can perform. This is followed by some simple arithmetic problems. He then quickly introduces more complex problems involving military fortification, geometry, and surveying” (Tomash & Williams).
